No. 3 Kansas beats Miami of Ohio 83-56

Markieff Morris had 20 points and twin brother Marcus added 18 to help No. 3 Kansas cruise past Miami of Ohio 83-56 on Sunday.

Kansas (13-0) extended the nation's longest homecourt winning streak to 67 games. Freshman Josh Selby had 18 points for the Jayhawks, one of seven unbeaten teams in Division I.

The twins went a combined 16 of 22 from the field.

Orlando Williams had 11 points and Allen Roberts added 10 for Miami (5-9), which has lost to the nation's current top three teams. The Redhawks lost 79-45 at No. 1 Duke and 66-45 at No. 2 Ohio State in November.

The Jayhawks took control with a 14-0 run in the first half that made it 33-11 with 5:19 to play. Selby spurred the run with eight points, including an emphatic slam and baseline 3-pointer.

The rest of the time it was Marcus and Markieff Morris, neither of whom started the game. The twins had a combined 29 points in the first half — eight more than Miami, which trailed 47-21.

The Redhawks trailed by more than 30 points several times in the second half.

After Miami's Nick Winbush hit a jumper to bring Miami within 6-5, Markieff Morris had seven points in the next 4 minutes as Kansas stretched the lead to 19-9.

The other Jayhawks contributed to the game's biggest run during which Kansas scored 14 straight points for a 33-11 lead with 5:19 remaining in the half. The stretch was highlighted by Selby's slam and 3-pointer.

Marcus and Markieff Morris combined to score Kansas' last 12 points of the first half, including 3-pointers for each, and they had a combined 29 points by halftime — eight more than Miami. KU outrebounded Miami 25-8 and shot 57.1 percent from the field in building a 47-21 halftime lead.

Miami found more success shooting in the second half, making four of its first six 3-point attempts after going 2 of 12 from the arc in the first half.

But the RedHawks could never significantly cut into Kansas' lead. The Jayhawks outrebounded Miami 46-17 led by Markieff Morris' 10 boards.

Another big factor was Selby, the dynamic freshman playing his fourth game. Selby was coming off his first struggle as a Jayhawk, going 1 of 9 in 26 minutes against Texas-Arlington on Wednesday.

He shook that off to go 7 of 12 from the field — 4 of 5 on 3-pointers — in 25 minutes. He had seven rebounds — two fewer than he had in his first three games combined.
